    John, the thing about is that all of a sudden it feels like an updated car. Cars today have settings that you can adjust to fit your needs like the ride or sportiness of the engine. To simply be able to control some of those in this car is so awesome. Using is like giving my car an energy drink- green light is a Red Bull, and red light is a 5 hour energy lol

    SprintBooster button >> M3 SPORT Button mod doityourself

    Yes Sir....

    Sprint Booster Info:
    2 wire Sprint Boosters should be Manual version and 4 wire Auto. This has been debated before and gets confusing.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sprint Booster Info:

    "CLICK"
    Sprint Booster V2 - (SBM10001S) - 6MT -2 wires
    Sprint Booster V2 - (SBBM0002S) - Auto - 4 wires

    The BDD401 is suppose to be for a Manual and the BDD401A is for a Automatic BUT you can use either one apparently. One is just more sensitive than the other. The "A" after the model number mean Auto and also the one they recommend for the "M".

    Found This Info:
    They are cross-suitable. The Auto version simply is less sensitive than the manual version as there is no clutch control element to help you keep it under control.

    http://www.sprintbooster.it/doc/Spri...ly%202013).pdf

    This link shows the original version with "NO" mode button. There is no "S" after the model number. "S" = Selectable or Switch version.

    1. The compatibility of some parts may vary between different markets.
    2. All parts ending with "A" (i.e. SBDD451A) are developed for use in Automatic & Tiptronic transmission models (DSG…etc)
    3. Manual versions (non "A"versions) can only be installed in manual models.
    4. In some early models the throttle connector is located in the engine bay
    5. For Mercedes AMG, BMW M Series and highly tuned models we suggest the use of the Auto version
    6. Switches are not universal. They will only work with the specific Sprint Booster in the box. Do not use the same switch in different Sprint Booster part numbers.

    (FYI Mini Cooper is the same part number as the BMW's)
    MINI COOPER 2002- ALL ENGINES SBDD401 / SBDD401A
    BAVSOUND Stage 1 - UltraGauge - Valentine One - Orion V4's - ARC-8's
    TTFS Engine/SMG Tune/CSL 255 - SGT Headers/Sect 1/SCZA - Evolve Eventuri
    VIS XTS CF Hood - CF Lip/Console/Diffuser - OE CSL Trunk - BWS 500S 9k/11k

    Joey,

    That’s why I have Sprint Booster in all my cars except my Audi (which will change this summer).

    The Sport Button mod was probably one of the most challenging mods, not because it is too complex to do, but because how hard it is to solder everything without burning out the LEDs from the Sprint Booster.

    Even if you don’t do the Sport Button mod, just having Sprint Booster connected will change the personality of your car. Lots of fun for those who have it!!

    Can anyone tell me how much of a difference the auto vs manual sensitivity is? Will the car be too jumpy with the manual trans version?

    Ok so have my button pod and the SB should be here soon to get wired up.

    I read through this whole thing, and kept asking myself...besides the LED, why can't I use the standard output of the sport button wired back to the SB? Essentially replace the SB harness and button with wiring from the sport button. Then you can add a zener diode and red led to the sport button. I guess I need to measure the outputs and inputs from the SB.
